Camp Molly


We are very happy to be introducing the first firefighting leadership camp for high school students in Halton Region. Our goal is to provide a fire service introduction and basic working knowledge to young females aged 15 to 18 years who may have not considered the possibility of pursuing a career in the fire service because it is traditionally thought of as a male dominated field. This camp will include information and experiences related to the following fire service fields: Leadership, Training, Communications, Fire Prevention, Fire Investigation, Public Education, Fire Code Enforcement, Public Information and Media Relations.
